8/10 96% Creem: America's Only Rock 'N' Roll Magazine (2020) It was a product of its time, and that time is long gone. Maybe that's a good thing; maybe it isn't. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 92% Fyre (2019) [Chris] Smith brilliantly uses the stories from his subjects to create a multi-faceted, unpredictable villain who refused to give up even after such an epic failure. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 81% VFW (2020) What seems like an incredibly simple plot really is just that - simple - which is the subtle beauty behind VFW. Without a quagmire of convoluted twists to navigate, we get to truly understand and relate to these characters. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 65% The Shed (2019) Without turning into a cheesy after school special, Sabatella spins a classic '80s yarn into brilliant social commentary. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 83% Daniel Isn't Real (2019) Robbins turns in a simply stellar performance as a timid young man becoming completely unhinged. Schwarzenegger perfectly plays off of him as the maniacal voice in his head... - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 91% Boiled Angels: The Trial of Mike Diana (2018) Boiled Angels helps us wake up outside the "woke" bubble. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 100% Find Me (2019) This film could have easily devolved into some corny Nicholas Sparks drivel or low-brow comedy bro-fest, but instead, Huang tells it perfectly, never getting too sappy or letting the humor get in the way of the story. - Film Threat EDIT

4.5/5 100% General Magic (2019) In the grand scheme of things, failure is not only an option but a necessary step in the right direction. Maybe that didn't work, but why and where does it point? The future is wide open as long as we keep moving forward. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 No Score Yet It Takes a Lunatic (2019) Handman's legacy will last as long as his students continue to grace the screens we watch. Every expression, inflection, and movement has been touched by this madman who simply strives to make our lives a little better through the performing arts. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 89% You Don't Nomi (2020) While far from a straightforward documentary about a widely marginalized film, You Don't Nomi reminds us that it's okay to like things with rough edges, that streamlined perfection is overrated... - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 100% Rewind (2020) It's a level of bravery that few of us can muster, but an inspiration to anyone who has ever faced the same challenges. Talk about a superhero. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted May 6, 2019
8/10 98% Circus of Books (2020) It sends a strong message that we should never be ashamed of who or what we are and that the freedoms we enjoy were fought and won in the most unusual of places. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted May 2, 2019
9/10 100% Slay the Dragon (2020) Slay the Dragon emphatically proves that no matter how rigged the system is and how high the opposition is stacked against you, it is possible to make changes if you're passionate and articulate enough to convince your neighbors... - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 58% Crown Vic (2019) Joel Souza hasn't reinvented the wheel with Crown Vic, but he has definitely sent it down a different road. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 60% New Money (2019) New Money serves as an excellent reminder of where desperation can lead if we let it get the better of us. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2019
4/10 71% Core of the World (2018) There's a faction of filmmakers that strives to emanate real life in their art and end up putting the audience to sleep. Core of the World is like that. It's so true to life that it ends up a complete dud. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet King of Beasts (2019) Almagor and Harel are completely successful in presenting a subject with enough information that we can come to our own conclusions in the end. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 80% Any One of Us (2019) It's tough being tied to a wheelchair and Any One Of Us does an excellent job of making this abundantly clear. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Salvage (2019) Elliott captures it all with humor and respect for her subjects. The townspeople don't come off as inbred hillbillies, rather they make very intelligent arguments as to why this pastime is so important. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2019
10/10 99% For Sama (2019) For Sama will be the single most heart-wrenchingly honest film you have ever seen. No amount of acting, elite accolades or story manipulation will ever compare to the genuine truth captured by a woman with a camera in Syria. - Film Threat EDIT

3/10 72% Lords of Chaos (2019) You would think a real biopic would take the time to capture a groundbreaking musical movement and really dig into the personalities of those who created it, as well as those who lost their lives for it. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2019
4/10 93% The Distant Barking of Dogs (2018) Despite good intentions, The Distant Barking of Dogs falls drastically short of the powerful impact a film like this should deliver. - Film Threat EDIT

2/10 88% Newly Single (2018) Sadly, what could have been the next Tiny Furniture gets so wrapped up in its own narcissism that it falls flat with a dull thud. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2019
7/10 80% The Drone (2019) If you're looking for lavish cinematography or a deep message, you won't find it here. The Drone is just silly entertainment with some fun kills. It doesn't ask to be taken seriously; it just wants us to smile. We need more of these. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2019
6/10 61% Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) In the end, you're entertained, but not so invested in the characters that you're hooked to every word. It's enjoyable, but not memorable, and certainly, nothing that lingers in the mind... - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
3/10 12% An Acceptable Loss (2019) What could have explored the real complexities behind a serious issue instead became a self-congratulatory pat on the back for holding a specific viewpoint, and a boring one at that. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2019
10/10 No Score Yet New Wave: Dare to Be Different (2017) As obnoxious as the retro trend of old technology can be, there are possibilities on the fringes. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2018
8/10 No Score Yet Mandao of the Dead (2018) Dunn may not have much experience - this is only his second feature - but he makes a better film than contemporary directors with twenty-plus features on Amazon. His brand of passion and dedication cannot be imitated or learned. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 87% Starfish (2019) While he could have stayed stuck in the black void of sorrow, White instead made something beautiful. Honestly, he could not have paid a better tribute to his friend. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 83% Olympia (2020) This, folks, is why we respect our elders. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 73% The Apparition (L'apparition) (2018) Despite its shortcomings, The Apparition remains an interesting watch if you're willing to put in the effort. The direction and performances alone are worth the price of admission. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 33% High Voltage (2018) An interesting blend of dramatic scenes and supposed archival footage makes for a quasi-documentarian approach along the lines of Behind the Music or, more to the point, Paranormal Witness. A music video interlude proves his eye exceeds most others. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2018
9/10 83% After Everything (Shotgun) (2018) After Everything shows us that there's always a future at the end of the journey. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 40% Spiral (2018) It's nice to know there are filmmakers willing to turn genres upside down to get something more interesting than the standard storyline. Spiral succeeds because it is different. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 75% Bomb City (2018) Every piece is flawless, right down to the soundtrack. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Lesser Beasts (2018) In Lesser Beasts, Casey T. Malone has produced a science fiction art film that not only ranks with the greats, he practically made it by himself with no money. That alone is worth attention. - Film Threat EDIT
